Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue, wrote a commentary in today’s Eagle responding to a column by Eagle editorial writer Randy Scholfield that criticized pro-life protesters who use photos of aborted fetuses. Newman argued that, as with some horrific news photos that helped expose injustices, “the images of aborted babies are educating the public about an issue in a way that melts away the euphemistic terminology on both sides.” He wrote: “Volumes of opinion articles and all the debate over a woman’s right to choose, or whether it is her body, become simply rhetoric when faced with just one image of the brutality of abortion.”
What do you think? And what about displaying these graphic photos where children are likely to see them, such as on the pro-life “Truth Truck”?
